Hi,

I am desperately trying to find a source of historical data for various commodities. I donít need charts, I need values Ė for example closing price of Corn Jul 15 (CN15.CBT) for the last month. Iíve tried it on Yahoo Finance, but thereís nothing there, no historical data. Then I found out about Yahoo Finance API and tried to use that.
But no luck either. So the best solution for me would be to know the code to use for Yahoo Finance API to get historical data for commodities from it. But if you could direct me to a website where I could get the values for every day of the last few months for a certain commodity that would be great too. Is anybody able to help, please?

Thank you
Petr

They have been around for a long time, and many guys use them for EOD data.
